Friends of AiP Scholarship Fund

Urgent preservation threats are addressed each year by our dynamic volunteers, know as jammers. AiP’s need for jammers continues to increase and interest is building around the world. Many people would like to participate, but let us know that the project fee is beyond their means. 

We would like everyone wanting to attend a project to have that opportunity!

Your donation will help sustain the Friends’ of AiP Scholarship Fund and provide support allowing everyone – regardless of their financial status – to have the adventure of a lifetime.

Help us to reach our goal of ensuring assistance to all who want to get hands-on and contribute to valuable building conservation efforts. You will ensure a brighter future for students, young professionals and other volunteers who benefit from this scholarship program.

Your donation may be directed to a specific person, if you’d like to help a friend or family member join an adventure. Contact AiP after making your donation.

Donate today to impact a jammer and the community where they will work.
